Merry Monday Challenge Week #122

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! 

So, last week was my turn to hostess the Merry Monday Challenge. If you played along, Thank You! We had sooo many gorgeous cards in the gallery that I had one tough time picking a winner. In my eyes they were all winners but we all know that we have to pick one. I chose a card from Brian King. It was the most beautiful card from the rich colors of the gorgeous greens & pinecones and the plaid ribbon! Stunning!

Anyways, this week we have a new challenge over at Merry Monday! Sue is our hostess, so let's get to it!



I really like these colors for a Christmas card! I kept my card simple this week. My cardbase and first layer are Basic Black and embossed with the Snow Burst Embossing Folder. I added my banner across the top with silver cord. My little banners are silver & gold foil paper and I added punched stars to them. Once I got my Merry diecut attached I threw on some gold sequins and called it done. I'm loving it and hope you do too!
